Product code: herb6021
Remedy a herbicide and specialty weed control product has been developed specifically for range and pasture, is the most economical way to reclaim your pasture from brush encroachment and improve grass productivity.
1 gallon size
Selective brush and mid-size tree control for fence line maintenance and pasture regeneration. RemedyTM is a low residual alternative to mechanical removal and comes with low environmental impact.
For best results, apply when plants are actively growing, which typically occurs early in the summer. Apply at least 10 days prior to leaf colour change in late summer. Application in late summer or in periods of dry weather when plants are not actively growing may result in unsatisfactory control.
There are no grazing restrictions if Remedy is applied at 2 L/ac or less, or if less than 25% of the area was treated. At higher treatment rates, wait 14 days before grazing.
Depending on the species and how actively the treated plants are growing, it will take couple of days for symptoms to appear and several weeks for plants to die. Grass density and speed of recovery will be effected by the density of the woody species controlled, soil type and environmental conditions. A successful application of Remedy will provide at leat two years of improved grass production.
Remedy EC Herbicide is recommended for the control of undesirable woody plants and annual and perennial broadleaved weeds on pastures and rangelands. Among the woody plants controlled at the lower rate are:
alder elderberry pines♦ ash elm♦ poplar aspen hawthorn red maple♦ basswood hickory raspberry♦ beech hop-hornbeam sassafras birch honey locust♦ sumac blackberry locust sycamore buckthorn maples tamarack cherry♦ mulberry wild rose chokecherry♦ oaks♦ willow cottonwood poison oak witchhazel dogwood
These species may require treatment at the higher rate and may need to be retreated the following year, particularly if the original treatment was made at the lower rate. Among the annual and perennial broadleaved weeds controlled are: burdock field bindweed smooth bedstraw chicory lamb’s-quarters vetch curled dock ragweed wild lettuce dandelion smartweed
Treated areas may be grazed by livestock or harvested for livestock feed provided that the following intervals are adhered to: Grazing or harvesting green forage
I. Lactating dairy animals A. Up to 4.7 L/ha: withhold lactating dairy animals from consuming treated green forage for 14 days following treatment. B. 4.7 to 8.0 L/ha: withhold lactating dairy animals from consuming treated forage for 60 days following treatment. II. Other livestock
A. Up to 4.7 L/ha: no grazing restriction.
B. 4.7 to 8.0 L/ha: do not graze or harvest green forage from treated area for 14 days following treatment. III. NOTE: If less than 25% of a grazed area is treated, there is no grazing restriction (for other livestock only). Haying (harvesting of dried forage) I. Lactating dairy animals
A. For treatments up to 8.0 L/ha do not feed lactating dairy animals hay which had been harvested within 60 days of treatment. II. Other livestock A. Up to 4.7 L/ha: do not harvest for 7 days following treatment. B. 4.7 to 8.0 L/ha: do not harvest hay for 14 days following treatment. Slaughter Withhold Withdraw livestock from grazing treated grass or consumption of treated hay at least 3 days prior to slaughter.
DIRECTIONS FOR USE
For best results, applications of Remedy EC Herbicide should be made when woody plants and weeds are actively growing. Use higher rates when hard-to-control species such as ash, chokecherry, elm, maple (other than vine or big leaf), oaks or pine are present. If lower rates are used on hard-to-control species, resprouting may occur and retreatment may be necessary the following year. When using a drift control agent, follow the manufacturer’s directions for the correct mixing sequence. Ground Application
Consult with the appropriate provincial authorities about use permits and the establishment of buffer zones. Use Precautions
Remedy EC Herbicide is not registered for application to water surfaces including lakes, ponds and streams and is highly toxic to certain species of fish, aquatic plants and aquatic invertebrates. Do not overspray such areas. In order to reduce the hazard of drift to non-target plants, aquatic species or sensitive habitat, ensure that appropriate buffer zones are maintained and refer to the section Spray Drift Control. Remedy EC
Spray Drift Control
Take into consideration areas of human habitation, areas of human activities, bodies of water, meteorological conditions, application equipment, and sprayer settings used for application. The potential for spray drift with ground broadcast applications can be reduced by: Apply a coarse spray using large droplet producing nozzle tips. Do not apply with cone-type nozzle or other nozzles that produce a fine droplet spray. Use of Radiarc® or Nalco-Trol® or an equivalent drift control system or additive. Keep the spray boom as low as possible. Use a spray pressure no greater than is required to obtain a proper spray pattern for adequate plant coverage. For ground application, do not apply Remedy EC Herbicide when wind velocity and direction pose a risk of spray drift. Apply when wind speed is low. For aerial application, please refer to “Use Precautions” for appropriate buffer zones under “Restricted Use.” If a spray thickening agent is used, follow all use directions and precautions on the product label. When using a power sprayer and handgun, direct sprays no higher than the tops of the target plants.
GROUND EQUIPMENT APPLICATIONS
Single Stem Foliar
For control of woody plants up to 2.5 m in height, use Remedy EC Herbicide at rates of 4 to 8 L in enough water to make 1000 L of spray solution. Use the higher rate for late summer application when growth rates are reduced or when hard-to-control species are present. Spray brush to the point of runoff. Coverage should be thorough to wet all foliage. To minimize spray drift do not use pressures exceeding 1400 kPa at the spray nozzle. Direct the spray away from crops or desired non-target vegetation. Use of a drift control system is suggested to minimize spray drift. For woody plants exceeding 2.5 m in height cut and spray regrowth or use one of the basal application methods. Low Volume Foliar
For control of woody plants up to 2.5 m in height use this technique with knapsack or backpack sprayers equipped with flat fan or solid cone nozzles. Power sprayers and handguns may also be used. For control of woody plants, mix 1 to 5 L of Remedy EC Herbicide in enough water to make 100 L of spray solution. Use of a rate in the upper end of the recommended range is suggested for control of basal sprouting and root suckering species and for tall, dense brush. Direct the spray solution to thoroughly wet the foliage of the target plants but not to the point of runoff. Apply after full leafout, but before autumn colouration. For woody plants exceeding 2.5 m in height cut and spray regrowth or use one of the basal application methods. Broadcast Foliar
For woody plant control and broadleaved weed control, make applications with equipment that will assure uniform coverage of the low spray volume applied. Do not use pressure exceeding 275 kPa at the spray nozzle. Apply any time during the growing season. Use the higher rates for late summer applications when growth rates are reduced or when hard-to-control species are present. Woody Plant Control
Mix 4 to 8 L of Remedy EC Herbicide in a minimum of 200 L of water per hectare to ensure uniform coverage. Broadleaved Weed Control
Mix 1 to 4 L of Remedy EC Herbicide in a minimum of 200 L of water per hectare to ensure uniform coverage.
BASAL BARK APPLICATIONS
General Information and Mixing Instructions
For control of woody plants on pastures and rangelands, use Remedy EC Herbicide in oil mixtures prepared and applied as described below. Use a diluent such as mineral oil or vegetable oil. Add Remedy EC Herbicide to the required amount of oil in the mixing tank and mix thoroughly. When mixing with oils commercially formulated for basal bark herbicide applications, read and follow the use directions and precautions on the product label prepared by the oil’s manufacturer. Use the higher spray mixture concentration of Remedy EC Herbicide when treating basal sprouting and root suckering species or when applying during the dormant season. Use low nozzle pressure to minimize spattering of spray solution off the target stem. One-Sided Low Volume
To control woody plants with stems less than 15 cm in basal diameter, mix 20 to 30 L of Remedy EC Herbicide in enough oil diluent to make 100 L of spray mixture. Apply with a knapsack or backpack sprayer using a flat fan or solid cone nozzle, or wick attachment. Low pump pressures of 70 to 210 kPa are recommended. Spray the basal parts of at least one side of each stem to thoroughly wet the lower 30 cm, including the root collar area, but not to the point of runoff. Apply at any time, including the winter months, except when snow or water prevent spraying at the ground line. Streamline To control woody plants, mix 20 to 30 L of Remedy EC Herbicide in enough oil to make 100 L of spray mixture. Apply using a knapsack or backpack sprayer with a flat fan or solid cone nozzle, or wick attachment. Low pump pressures of 70 to 210 kPa are recommended. Apply sufficient spray to one side of stems less than 8 cm in basal diameter to form a band 5 cm in width. When the optimum amount of spray mixture is applied, the treated zone should widen to encircle the stem within approximately 30 minutes. Treat both sides of stems which are 8 to 15 cm in basal diameter. Direct the spray at a point on the stem that is approximately 30 to 50 cm above ground level. Optimal results are achieved when applications are made to young vigorously growing stems which have not developed the thicker bark characteristics of slower growing, understory trees in older stands. Apply at any time, including the winter months, except when snow or water prevents spraying at the desired height above ground level. Cut Stump Treatment
To control resprouting of cut stumps of woody species, mix 20 to 30 L of Remedy EC Herbicide in enough oil to make 100 L of spray mixture. Apply with a backpack or knapsack sprayer using a flat fan or a solid cone nozzle. Low pump pressures of 70 to 210 kPa are recommended. Thoroughly wet the outer portion of the cut surface adjacent to the cambium and the sides of the stumps, including the root collar area, but not to the point of runoff. Apply at any time, including the winter months, except when snow or water prevents spraying to the ground line. Care must be given to ensure treatment of all cut stems in a clump.
